Gigabyte X79-UD3 Intel X79 Motherboard Review

Gigabyte’s lineup of Intel X79 or Sandy Bridge-E motherboards is only made up of four boards.  For gamers there is the G1 Assassin 2, X79-UD7-OC for overclockers, and X79-UD5 for enthusiasts.  This brings us to the X79-UD3 which is Gigabyte’s entry-level and least expensive Intel X79 motherboard coming it at $249.  Sandy Bridge-E is Intel’s high-end platform and the X79 chipset is much improved over its P67/Z68 counterparts.  You now have 40 PCI-Express 3.0 lanes and quad-channel memory.  That means with this board you can easily throw in up to 32GB of DDR3 and run 4-way Crossfire or SLI right out of the box.  Also this is the first time we will see Gigabyte’s 3D BIOS.  Read on as we inspect the X79-UD3 Motherboard.
